I read an interesting article on the health benefits of mineral and hot baths.  The focus is Japan and balneology or balnetherapy, which means the “treatment of disease by bathing”.  Whereas it…Continue

OK to be sociable while at spa?

Started by Sevnor. Last reply by Salt Dragon Mar 21. 5 Replies

Guys I'm curious about your input.  After being at a spa for a while - Korean Jumjibang (spelling?) I find that it can get a little boring.  Sometimes I strike up conversation with another guy. …Continue

Planning to be at Spa World in Centerville, VA Monday.  Let me know if any of you guys will be in the area.

I used to go to Dillon's years ago when I lived closer. It was a great place, very nude friendly. I suspect the place hasn't changed much since I last went.

Their website 

http://www.dillonsrussiansteambath.com/index.php

shows pictures that seem to me look like the place has been updated and modernized quite a bit since I was last there. That suggests to me that things are going well for them and the business is successful.

Have a great time there. Wish I could join you.

Has anyone been to Dillon's Russian Steam Bath in the Boston area.  I'm visiting this week and might have a chance to go this Thursday night.  I can't find much about it though.

How to negotiate a higher salary?

From my previous post, I mentioned that I am currently a temp for a corporation. This past week my boss said they want me in for a permanent position. It looks like I'll be getting hired as a permanent employee. I would greatly want a higher salary though. As a temp I'm getting $20/hr without the benefits. The employees who currently work there started off as temps. I asked around and they said their hourly rate went up when they became permanent employees.My question is, how reasonable of an…See More
